In September 2010 my friend Mark and I took our builder Gary to Zakynthos. We did our usual tour of the local tavernas for our evening meals, but quite often went for an "English" for our lunch in the small seaside town of Alykes. There’s a useful little supermarket there, also an ATM and some beachside cafés. One of them has an English staff, and does good old English fry-ups.

Views from the Taverna of the Cross, which we visited in 2013 as well as 2010.

A restaurant kitten, only a few weeks old.

A gecko on the outside balcony at Ariadne, demonstrating the use of the Van der Waals force generated by the millions of tiny hairs on its feet, enabling it to walk about upside down,. They live on insects, especially moths.
